Tom Brady loses sleep

Hello, Jets fans! Best here. I'll be a guest Jets blogger from now through the parade on Feb. 8. Thanks for having me.

Some great stuff here from Tom Brady's weekly Monday morning interview on WEEI, for those of you into Schadenfreude.

Me? I wrote a column here about how the Jets can't be looking at this next game as happy-to-be-there gravy, and a story here about the boffo ratings for Sunday's game.

I haven't been around the Jets as much this season as I have the Giants, and even given all of the publicity about their talking ability didn't fully appreciate it until hanging out in the locker room for an hour Monday.

One unexpected gem: DL Trevor Pryce. Who knew? The guy is smart, funny, insightful.

Speaking of quotable, Bart Scott's performance after Sunday's game - on TV and in the locker room - was an instant classic.

(I sat next to ESPN's Sal Paolantonio in the Jets' media work room Monday. He said he could sense early on that he should just stay out of the way and let Scott go.)

Here is what Pryce said Monday in discussing the Giants' Super Bowl run three seasons ago:

"What the Giants did was epic, like Bart's media interview after the game."

I love these guys!
